Stefan Buchner, who has held various management positions over the last 36 years at the Daimler Group, including his current post as head of Mercedes-Benz Trucks and member of the board of management of Daimler Trucks AG, will retire Sept. 30.

He will be succeeded by Karin Rådström, who will take up her post on Feb. 1, 2021, the company said. Rådström comes from Scania, where she was responsible for sales and marketing as a member of the board. Before Rådström assumes her post, John O’Leary, chief transformation officer Trucks Europe, will temporarily take over the management of the Mercedes-Benz truck business.
